iPad Air 10.5" and mini 2019 Discussions
 
As above...
I owned a 1st gen iPad mini with 512mb ram!!! Too slow for some apps and games.
Hopefully they announced iPad mini 5...very strong indication of a new mini this year.

boliao45 16-03-2019 08:33 PM

I'd guess likely no announcement just silently update in apple store, only minor hardware change won't have stage time one.

GotBetrayed 17-03-2019 02:19 AM

Yeah hope ipad mini 5 comes out but hope pricing wonít be ridiculous. Really like icloud sync though

szeli 17-03-2019 08:26 AM

sure, my 5yr+ old iPad Mini 2 needs a refresh 🥺

rvyne7 17-03-2019 10:29 PM

after ditching my 11" pro, will be definitely looking forward on new mini >.<

Snoweagle 17-03-2019 10:49 PM

My almost 4 years old mini 4 is now just sitting on my table, retired after I got the 10.5Ē Pro.

Mini 5.....I may not buy it either.

Glariel 17-03-2019 11:51 PM

Dunno if I should get this year's Pro, but may not be much difference in design to last year's model.

Eidekos 18-03-2019 08:54 PM

htngwilliam 18-03-2019 09:31 PM

Thought that at least the price point of the iPad Air will take over or be at what the 9.7 inch iPad is.

boliao45 18-03-2019 09:35 PM

Pencil support. But too bad its gen1.

Wanted to get iPad mini but the price is ridiculous. The air is worst than the 10.5Ē iPad Pro. Sian 1/2

sendhalp 18-03-2019 10:04 PM

but hey! the iPad mini now has A12, the same processor used in XS line!

cstanhwz 18-03-2019 10:30 PM

Aiyo, why still lightning port?

Snoweagle 18-03-2019 10:43 PM

Very powerful now for both the mini and Air, using same processor as XR/XS/XS Max. Itís a huge jump from the A8 on my mini 4, but Iíll still stick to my 10.5 Pro.

Of course. Itís not a Pro model to begin with. Comparing to the Pro, it does not have 4 speakers, does not have true tone flash, no 120Hz ProMotion display, inferior camera and no 4k recording.

Though it has a better processor with neural engine, but still itís not pro grade.

Glariel 18-03-2019 10:55 PM

Just bought iPad Pro last week

Ghostrider 18-03-2019 10:56 PM

Just ordered the new iPad mini.
No store collection option. Delivery is 28-30 Mar.

Glariel 18-03-2019 11:08 PM

The iPad Air is to replace the 10.5 inch iPad Pro. Nice move Apple.

Glariel 18-03-2019 11:12 PM

A12X is better and faster

Those are only reserved for the Pro models.

athletic91 19-03-2019 12:01 AM

This iPad Air will likely be the 3rd fasted ipad. Behind the 11 and 12.9 pro models

Eidekos 19-03-2019 12:33 AM

Ya just saw the macrumors, i thought they gonna wait til that end of the month events..

htngwilliam 19-03-2019 02:06 AM

Well, Air 10.5 vs iPad Pro 10.5 used, I think I may buy a used 10.5. More value if you compare the features.

iPad = Samsung Tab A
iPad Air = Samsung Tab S5E
iPad Pro = Samsung Tab S4
iPad mini = Samsung Tab A 8.0

Lol! Apple trash Samsung in all segments

rvyne7 19-03-2019 07:37 AM

anyone knows if this actually support fast charging?

Glariel 19-03-2019 07:39 AM

1 pencil will do not need so many

It is still the same introductory price but last time what you're paying for 16gb, you're now getting 64gb.
Why people has the perception the price is ridiculous is bcos, they're comparing the EOL phase pricing of mini4(128GB for S$798) vs the intro price of mini5(64GB for S$799)

I see but Mini 4 had a 3yr+ processor. I was shocked Apple din raised price 😆

TrueBeliever_jh 19-03-2019 10:54 AM

iPad Mini 2 + Cellular + 16GB was 728SGD

iPad Mini 5 + Cellular + 64GB now 799SGD

70SGD for the increased storage + Touch ID~?

Doraemon70 19-03-2019 11:17 AM

Yep, + pencil-support, better screen, faster processor and a much thinner and lighter mini than mini 2.

boliao45 19-03-2019 02:02 PM

Still have to factor in exchange rate differences. Mini 2 that time exchange rate usd/sgd was around 1.25, now is about 1.35 this factor itself is already difference by s$50+
